New purpose-built store for Alexandra
PGG Wrightson (PGW) officially opened its new purpose‐built Rural Supplies and Fruitfed Supplies store on Thursday, 11 February to service the wider Alexandra area. The ribbon was cut by Mrs Elisabeth Hinton who is a longstanding customer and the first person to purchase from the new store.
The Alexandra store brings together our Fruitfed Supplies and Rural Supplies businesses in a combined store on MacLean Road in the Alexandra Business Park. The store offers a generous retail store, a bulk warehouse and delivery yard, and regional offices. The PGW Real Estate office remains in Tarbert Street.
PGW’s General Manager Retail & Water, Nick Berry, said “This new 1,300 square metre purpose-built building allows for an improved customer experience with the opportunity to expand the existing product range and stock new products. We look forward to welcoming our loyal and new customers to this modern store.”
John O’Neill, PGW’s Lower South Island Regional Manager, says the concept of a new combined Fruitfed Supplies and Rural Supplies store has been under consideration for Alexandra for some time. “With continued horticulture and agriculture developments around the region, we are now well positioned to continue to assist our grower and farmer customers grow their businesses.”
The Alexandra building is an integral part of the wider PGW store network, which has 92 Rural Supplies and Fruitfed Supplies stores throughout Aotearoa New Zealand. In addition to the store, the building will accommodate representatives from our retail, livestock, and wool businesses.

As a result, we have been part of and have supported rural communities for multiple generations. Throughout the years our stores have innovated and adapted to meet the changing and diverse needs of our customers.
